Garden Dining Furniture
When planning your alfresco dining area it’s probably best to start with your dining table – how big would you like it to be, how many people does it need to accommodate, do you want it to be round or rectangular,and what style would you like? If you want the chairs to match, then it might be worth looking at outdoor dining sets that will include tables, chairs and possibly a parasol, too. This saves the hassle of having to find chairs that will go with your table or vice versa. Outdoor rattan dining sets are popular as they can be left out in all weathers; just make sure to remove any soft furnishings in damp or cold weather.
If you don’t quite have room for a large garden dining table, or perhaps you want a separate area for having breakfast or a spot of tea on a warm British afternoon, then garden bistro sets are your answer. These are smaller tables with two accompanying chairs, similar to what you would find in bistros and restaurants, and perfect for dining tête-à-tête with a loved one or friend. Garden bistro tables are usually simple, round, steel framed tables, but you can also find traditional wrought iron designs or more contemporary square ones. For the more modern outdoor diner there are also bar tables and outdoor bar stools in which you can sit sophisticatedly and enjoy a Pimms, cocktail or cold beer on a summer evening – perfect if you’re planning an outdoor party or barbecue and you want to be able to serve your guests drinks while outside.
Remember, you can define all the garden dining furniture on Houzz by style, too, so if you want to look at traditional garden bistro sets, eclectic dining chairs or contemporary bar stools, you can.
